For over 40 years, Dennis Jaffe has been one of the leading architects of the field of family enterprise consulting. As both an organizational consultant and clinical psychologist, he's helped multi-generational families to develop governance practices that build the capability of next generation leadership and ensure ongoing capability of financial organizations and family offices to serve their family clients.
Dennis' work with families helps inform financial advisors and wealth managers about the knowledge and skills needed to serve their client families. He's an acclaimed speaker and workshop leader in programs for business families and financial service firms. He is an associate with Wise Counsel Research, a think tank that sponsors my research and offers professional education workshops.
For 35 years, Dennis was professor of Organizational Systems and Psychology at Saybrook University in San Francisco, where he's now professor emeritus. He received my B.A. in Philosophy, M.A. in Management and Ph.D. in Sociology from Yale University.
