How Do I Work With Them?

We’ve all been there. Whether it’s our teammates at work, other students in a school project, or fellow volunteers in a service project, chances are you’ve come across someone you’ve found it difficult to work with. Possibly several people. Perhaps you even find your entire team infuriating!
