Researcher, Centre for Workplace Leadership, University of Melbourne

A true-blue CIA (Chinese Indonesian living in Australia), Mulyadi spent most of his formative years in Singapore prior to moving to Melbourne in search of better weather and coffee. Prior to joining the Centre, Mulyadi worked as a teaching associate at Monash University, lecturing and tutoring across three different campuses. His PhD dissertation on servant leadership, employee engagement, and workplace deviant behaviour is currently under examination. Mulyadi was also awarded the 2013 Greenleaf Scholar by the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership in the United States.

When not staying up late to watch Manchester United play in the English Premier League, Mulyadi is often invited by non-profit organisations and student clubs to deliver leadership development seminars. Mulyadi’s research interests include servant leadership, high performing work systems, destructive leadership, psychological capital, and the dark triad of personality.
