It’s not possible to stop by your coworker’s office, talk about the issue, and work through any slights or misunderstandings. You have to deal with it at a distance.

There are definitely things you can do to fix things and make your relationship with your coworker better. Watch this video by Amy Gallo, author of the “HBR Guide to Dealing with Conflict,” to learn how.
