Gunnar Peterson might work in LA but he’s in no way “Hollywood”. On the contrary, we brought him on to help us dismantle some leadership BS.

Do leaders wield influence? Yes. Are they held to a higher standard? Yeah. Are they accountable to people other than themselves? Absolutely. And it’s for these reasons that we’re talking to Gunnar about the need to set expectations and boundaries around time, create routines and habits to juggle life and work, and be authentic in a world that wants to pin you with a label.

We also discuss:

  1. Why he’s okay being called a “personal trainer” (when many in coaching aren’t)

  2. The difference between living in Hollywood and “acting Hollywood”

  3. How to grade yourself on your use of different communication platforms

  4. Communication as a way to clarify boundaries and set expectations
