520    The age-old question for every leader: how do we bring out
       the best in those we lead? Anyone who has run a company, 
       raised a family, lead an army, or coached a team struggles
       to find the key to help others excel and realize their 
       potential. It is surprising how often we resort to 
       criticism vs. an approach that actually results in a 
       better worker and a better person. In most organizations, 
       the methods used to provide feedback to employees, such as
       performance appraisal or multi-rater feedback systems, in 
       fact accomplish the exact opposite of what we intend. We 
       inadvertently speak Words of Death. Brain science tells us
       that these methods tend to engage a natural negativity 
       bias that is hardwired in us all. Science in recent years 
       has discovered that affirmation sets in motion huge 
       positive changes in the brain. It releases certain 
       neurochemicals associated with well-being and higher 
       performance. Criticism creates just the opposite neural 
       reaction. The most primitive part of the brain goes into 
       hyper defense mode, compromising our performance, 
       torpedoing our motivation and limiting access to our 
       higher-order strengths. How do we redirect employees who 
       are out-of-line without engaging our natural negativity 
       bias? Leaders must forever ban the term 'constructive 
       criticism.' Brain science tells us that we can establish a
       connection between the employee's work and his or her 
       aspirations. Irwin calls for a new approach to align 
       workers with an organizations mission, strategy, and
