About Sen Sendjaya

Dr Sen Sendjaya is an Associate Professor in the Department of Management, Faculty of Business and Economics, Monash University. He obtained his PhD in 2005 developing a multidimensional measure of servant leadership behaviour, the Servant Leadership Behaviour Scale (SLBS), which has been used to inform leadership training, assessment, recruitment and selection decisions in organizations. He has since continued to conduct teaching and research in the field of servant leadership in relation to its influence mechanism, development and impacts (e.g., citizenship behaviour, trust, wellbeing, commitment, creativity). In 2012 he and his colleagues secured a three-year research project with nearly a quarter of million dollar grant from the Australian Research Council to examine the impact of servant leadership in building ethical and engaging work practices. His work has appeared in Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Business Research and International Journal of Human Resource Management, among others. Sen simultaneously received the 2009 Commendations for the Dean's Award for Excellence in Research and Teaching. Over the last few years, he has been invited to consult and speak on leadership in seminars and corporate workshops in Australia and overseas (i.e., America, China and Indonesia).
