I have a job that I've almost always liked. Unfortunately, the past few months I have been assigned to a team of people I just don't get along with. I work with a certain individual, "George", and we have never really gotten along.

George is my senior(though not my boss) at the company and and our relationship is quite strained. It's bad enough where the thought of continuing to work with him for more than a few weeks more is causing me minor depression.

I can say without hesitation changing teams would help me immensely. I haven't had problems with any one else and enjoy almost everyone I work with.

I asked my boss(and his boss) to change teams and told him clearly it was because of George. I indicated I didn't think it was a problem with either of us, just that we don't work well together. I've been told it's on the agenda, but nothing is going to happen in the immediate future. Teams can stay together for a few months to a few years. I told them I really want a change but didn't say anything beyond that. I don't think they understand I would quit over this.

In short, I am already looking for another job but would stop once they said they would move me.

I feel like having a job offer for leverage will do damage to the current relationship with my employer and I much rather resolve this without an ultimatum.

I don't want to give my boss an ultimatum, but how can I friendly say "If this doesn't change, I am going to be leaving soon"?
