Too Skilled to Lose

Lately, I’ve been hearing this conversation: “I know he (or she) is a difficult co-worker. We’ve tried to coach him to be a better team player…But the dilemma is that he has a skill set that we need right now and it would be hard to replace him. So, we keep putting up with him because he’s too valuable to lose.”
What is your response to this dilemma? We’ll weigh in after hearing your thoughts.
