Bruno Kahne: Deaf-tips

Bruno Kahne is PhD in Sociology from the University of Exeter (UK), Master in Pedagogy and Linguistics in Belgium, who has worked for the last 15 years as a consultant and trainer in the field of communication, leadership and personal development for companies as diverse as the food, nuclear and construction industries. He currently lives in France and works at the AirBusiness Academy, the international training centre of the company Airbus.

Bruno published a book titled "Deaf Tips: Twelve lessons from the Deaf world to improve your communication in your personal, social, and professional life". In this book, Bruno argues that Sign Language communication between Deaf people is faster and more accurate than communication between hearing people.

Bruno started working on this idea in 2006 and published some articles before finally publishing this book in 2013. Some of his tips are the following:
  • Look people in the eyes.
  • Don't interrupt.
  • Say what you want to say as simply as possible.
  • When you don't understand something, ask.
  • Stay focused.
Some of these tips may seem obvious, but the fact is that Bruno has shown his effectiveness with hundreds of people who he has advised and trained, demonstrating it even in the French TV channel France 5 (French subtitles):

The book can be ordered from Amazon for approximately 17 dollars.
