Here's the thing - having to suck up to anyone stinks - but that's a fact of life for just about everyone unless you win the lottery.
I could not disagree more.
I am paid for my services and I offer worthwhile expertise and effort. If you don't want it, then don't hire me. If you do hire me for a project, presumably it's because you value what I do. It's a fair exchange. When I've been in situations where I wasn't treated fairly, I left.
I am (mostly) positive to my clients and project teams because you get more done with a happy team, and because anything (work related) can be solved and overcome with good spirit and some smarts.
I don't view basic courtesy as sucking up. The alternative is to be a jackass to people, and that's not the way I roll.
