How to Reach Your Enemy
By Harvard Business Review | May 4, 2012 | +
Having enemies in the workplace is often destructive. Ideally you should try to work with your rival instead of against him. But if your collaborative efforts fail, try one of these strategies instead:

Find a common ally. Seek a third party whom your enemy trusts. A common ally may convince him of the benefits of working with you.
Wait for the right time. Sometimes people need time and space before they can see your side. Put off communication until the right opportunity presents itself.
Recognize when to go elsewhere. The effort of converting a rival is sometimes so great that you’re better off focusing your energy on another relationship.

Working with a difficult person can be distracting and draining. Next time a colleague irritates you to no end, try these three things:
Manage your reaction. If someone annoys you, don’t focus on his behavior. Focus on how you react, which is usually the only thing you can control.
Keep it to yourself. Emotions are contagious, so complaining about a co-worker can bring everyone down. And it can reflect negatively on you. If you must vent, do it outside the office.
Work together. It’s counterintuitive, but by spending more time together you may develop empathy for your colleague. You might discover reasons for his behavior: stress at home, pressure from his boss, etc.
