Working on an op model project where we keep hearing feedback (from multiple people) that one of the client leaders (one of our client team members) is super difficult to work with. I feel like we cannot ignore the feedback (i.e., we should either talk to him or his boss and convey how the team feels) but the partner on my project feels it’s not our mandate… Thoughts?
