I partner with another PM Director on the team our working styles including personality, ways of working and acceptable tasks are fundamentally different. Any suggestions on how to make this work?

Have a conversation with the Director. Acknowledge the differences and work together to identify how your differences are a strength and how it may cause conflict. For example if one of you is a people first Agile mindset type and the other is process first traditional PM then you’ve got a breath of approaches and tools to leverage for the project. Part of being a PM is leaning into conflict rather than sweeping it under the rug. Don’t mistake team harmony for team health.
