Host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Madison Marcus director Benoir Bayssari about his vocational journey (including his brief foray into dentistry), how he assumed a leadership position, the need for approachability as a leader, how leaders have had to adapt their thinking and strategies in recent times, and lessons Mr Bayssari has learnt during times of hardship in the market.

Mr Bayssari also delves into the extent to which leaders have to get creative in the post-pandemic new normal, practical steps for lawyers who have been promoted to senior associate, special counsel, partner, and other roles should take in assuming their new duties, where they can be looking for external guidance, whether in-office working will be critical for such professional development, how new leaders can look after themselves, the need for proactivity, and what is exciting about assuming new leadership responsibilities in the current climate.
