Obsequious

Obsequious
 
<ahb-seek-qwee-us>
 
servile; subservient; slavish;
 
being submissive and groveling.
 
She is not obsequious. She gives her opinion and stands up for herself.
 
Memory trick:
obsequious reminds of obsessed.
we flatter and fawn when we are obsessed.
 
At work:
I don't want obsequious employees. I want people who are willing to speak up.
