Going through the same thing at my company right now. In my opinion, they should get used to the way things are done at your company. You want to compromise and find middle ground but sometimes that's just not possible and/or leads to confusion.

Yeah, I think this is the best approach given the situation as well.

Team building exercises work well!!
