Thanks for reading this.

We hope it helps you and your colleague to work better together in the long run. You may have to re-evaluate how you view them; you might have formed wrong impressions already.

Remember: they won't mind directness. So ask them anything that is on your mind about this. They'd really prefer it!

We know some people don't like being direct; maybe they could send a note now and again.

And some people won't enjoy working with others regardless - we know that. But since we can't 'take a hint' you'll have to tell us if you expect us to know!

If you can, please:
- Be DIRECT with us
- CHECK what we really mean
- DON'T be embarrassed: enjoy our differences!
