Dr. Erin Baker is a Doctor of Social Psychology, recovering big tech employee, trauma-informed coach, and occasional podcaster. Before becoming a self-leadership and business coach, Erin previously led the User Experience Research team at Facebook and was part of bringing Facebook Stories to 2 billion people. They were also the Director of User Experience Research & Design at Microsoft Yammer. An internal family systems practitioner and elite certified neuro-transformational coach, Erin completed their Ph.D. in Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan.

Their book, Joy-Full AF: The Essential Business Strategy We’re Afraid to Put First will be available on September 7, 2022.

Erin joins me today to discuss what it means to be Joy-full AF—in business and life. They describe what embracing joy looks like and explain why it is an essential part of career success. They highlight the difference between working through discomfort and the nervous system being unsafe. They also discuss why trauma is relevant to business, coaching, and everything in life, and underscore how we can all open up to joy.

“There’s no universal definition of what it means to be joyful—it’s a full body experience only you can experience for yourself. The fun thing is discovering what joy means to you.” - Dr. Erin Baker
