If both co-workers are great employees, the easiest thing to do is to give them responsibilities that don't overlap.

If the employees are both valuable and must have overlapping responsibilities, then some time must be spent on encouraging them to see each other's perspective. Retreats or workshops that include exercises that explain the four basic types of personalities, the traits of each, and why each personality handles various situations the way they do have been proven to be very successful in solving employee conflict.
