Nicole Kidman's children gave her strength to cope with dad's death

  Nicole Kidman's children gave her strength to cope with dad's death Nicole Kidman's young daughters helped give her the strength to cope with her father's death. The 52-year-old actress lost her beloved biochemist dad Antony Kidman back in September 2014 - a bereavement that left her close to a breakdown. However, she has now shared how the words of her youngest child, Faith, made her pull herself together and throw herself back into life. "My three-year-old said, 'But you're not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?'" she told Tatler magazine. "That's when you realise, y'know, you have to be OK.

Then tell them what you want for them as their manager, expressing your belief in their talent and skill. But follow up with stated consequences, and then move to a plan. It’s not enough to tell people to fix an issue -- they might need your support. Let them know you’re behind them.” -- Daina Trout, cofounder and CEO, Health-Ade

5. Dig deeper. 

“Ask how the person is feeling about work. Open-ended questions such as: ‘If you could change one thing about this company, what would it be?’ or ‘If you could restructure your workday, what would it look like?’ can reveal that the person is having personal issues or a communication problem with a coworker or is concerned about the direction of the company. Whatever the response, make sure to listen. Close your computer, put your phone away, or get out of the office to have this conversation. It will make the next steps clearer.” -- Steven Gutentag, cofounder, Thirty Madison
