Sometimes it’s awesome right from the start. Other times it takes a few passes through the trenches to start trusting and relying on one another. They might be going through things that effect their ability to connect or work well with others. If they’re talented and you respect their work, let them know that. If they are being a hinderance to the process. Let them know that and ask what you can do to help them, as a partner, work through it. Or breakup like a quitter.

Have you tried wining and dining them? I find it helps initially to almost romance them. Find reasons to give compliments. Text them randomly to try and form an inside joke. Offer to buy the coffee/lunch when you brainstorm out of the office. Make them feel special.

To be clear I am NOT saying to ACTUALLY put the moves on your partner. I'm saying it's a useful blueprint to getting them to think more fondly of you so they are easier to work with.

How do you feel about public holiday gatherings? I felt like such a crummy mother for not taking my kids out to see a parade or fireworks yesterday. But then with the tragedy in Illinois and (on a much smaller scale) the number of local fires because of fireworks (which are banned in my town, btw), I feel so much safer having my kids at home.
