#Faceoftheweek – Aisha Jimoh

February 1, 2023

In an exclusive interview with Aisha Jimoh, granted Bayo Speaks as a face of the week. She revealed her background, lifestyle, career and achievements.

Aisha Jimoh is an Executive Assistant and endowed with various techniques, including setting clear expectations, providing regular feedback, and encouraging open communication.

Background Check;

May we get to meet you; who is Aisha Jimoh?

I am an executive assistant and most recently, a certified scrum master.

Please tell us about your background.

I am an Ebira from kogi state, Nigeria. I grew up in Abuja and I did all my schools there, from primary school to university and service year, so I’m an Abuja Babe… Lol!

Tell us about your educational background.

I got my B.Sc. in Business Administration from the University of Abuja. But a fascinating fact is that I started B.Sc. chemistry at ABU Zaria but never finished, making me a half-baked chemist.

What do you do for a living?

I am an Executive Assistant

When did you know you wanted this job?

I have been working with top executives and seeing how happy they are in terms of achieving their goals, seeing the smiles on their faces made me thrilled that I was doing the right.

What dream did you have while growing up?

Like most kids, I also wanted to be a Doctor or a pharmacist.

My mother died during childbirth, so I grew up wanting to be a doctor, so I could save lives and prevent people from losing loved ones like mine. Also, a Pharmacist so I could create drugs that cure many diseases and protect life and humanity.

As a management consultant, how do you manage people and brands?

My role as a management consultant is to provide expert advice and assistance to businesses. Also, to help them improve their performance and achieve their objectives.

In terms of people management, I employ various techniques, including setting clear expectations, providing regular feedback, and encouraging open communication. I would also collaborate with the company to create and implement effective workforce management strategies such as talent management, performance management, and succession planning.

In terms of brand management, I would assist the company in developing and implementing a solid brand strategy that effectively communicates and differentiates its unique value proposition from its competitors. This strategy could include market research, creating a brand positioning statement, and developing a visual identity.

How do you separate your feelings and emotions from difficult decisions?

It can be challenging to separate one’s feelings and emotions from difficult choices, as emotions play a significant role in decision-making. One strategy for managing emotions in decision-making is to take a step back and assess the situation objectively. This strategy may involve gathering information, considering multiple perspectives, and weighing the pros and cons of different options. Another approach is to engage in mindfulness practices, such as meditation or deep breathing, to help regulate emotions and maintain a clear and focused mindset. Additionally, seeking guidance from a therapist or counselor may help develop emotional regulation and decision-making skills

Without social management, don’t you think brands will survive?

Brands can survive without social management but may need to grow and maintain a positive reputation. Brands can use social media to connect with customers, share information, engage in two-way communication, and deal with negative perceptions. A brand with a social media presence may take advantage of these opportunities.

Can you share when you were at work and thought, “I love doing this; I can’t believe I’m getting paid right now?”

As a virtual assistant, I love helping and seeing others win, so getting paid is incredible.

 Please tell us about the people you admire.

I admire a lot of people for different reasons…Nelson Mandela, Oprah Winfred, Mufti Menk, Aanu Gopald, and generally, I love people who are selfless in helping humanity and show great leadership qualities.

Describe yourself in one word.

Compassionate.

Sometimes people feel that life is not worth living. Can you tell us what you think about your own life?

The truth is that no one has a perfect life, and life is to be enjoyed. So make use of everything that’s going on in your life positively. I adore my life because only I can live it as beautifully as I do. God chose me for the role for a reason, so why should I think it’s not worth living?

Where do you hope to be in the next four years?

In the next four years, I will have become well-grounded in business strategy and development, a LinkedIn influencer, is the voice for Muslim females in tech and start pursuing an MBA at the London Business School.
