Insight, analysis, action. The Imprint Talent Readiness team has worked together for several years—in fact, Chris and Ana are longtime partners in business and marriage—so we’re adept at integrating our efforts to deliver what you need. A lot of businesses in our space generate reports; we generate results. There’s a difference.
As a C-level executive and entrepreneur, Chris has walked in your shoes. Like you, he’s felt the pain of hiring mistakes.
In 40+ countries, in multimillion-dollar companies, Chris has held roles from sales to Corporate Officer & President. Along the way he stayed curious, questioning hiring, retention, and management practices based on poor predictors and cognitive biases. Ever the disruptor, he moved upstream by applying science-driven insights to talent challenges.
Helping growth-minded clients find, manage, and value their talent with psychometrics and KPIs requires a dynamic, insightful approach. Chris stays close, stays responsive as clients push through often-uncomfortable change. The reward? Seeing them realize meaningful business impacts.
Chris comes from a long line of independent thinkers and doers; his mother was leaning in way before it was a book. Service was also important in his family; Chris continued that tradition as a Marine.
Giving back now includes coaching CEOs and emerging business leaders. With his wife, Chris also provides marriage mentoring for engaged couples.
Ana brings method, order, and high energy to Imprint’s operations and client services. As a seasoned project and operations manager, talent management and career coach, and passionate about marketing communications and strategic development (one look at her resume and you will see how relevant her diverse experiences are to her work), Ana is dedicated to ensuring your successful experience with the Predictive Index and Imprint’s resources.
Collaboration and transparency are Ana’s air and water. She sees clients as partners who bring not only their needs to the table, but seeds—she manages expectations up front to understand your business challenges and convert them to solutions by applying science-driven insights. Lines of communication are open and flowing.
Ana’s secret sauce? Tenacity. Determination. A positive mindset. Her parents fled Cuba with the clothes on their backs and built successful lives as US citizens. Ana herself survived a major health crisis in her 20s while she was in grad school, working full time. She became a fighter who could find resolution for any issue, large or small.
Every decade, Ana sets herself a “small” personal challenge, just for fun. She has earned a black belt in Tae Kwan Do, picked up running several years ago, and recently ran her first marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon in DC. Who knows what she will conquer next?
Shannon is a data storyteller with a passion for stats and a knack for narrative. She creates the instruments that measure your organization’s readiness and then wades knee-deep into the data, analyzing and transforming it to create a vivid picture of your organization’s capabilities.
You couldn’t be in better hands. Direct, transparent, and thoughtful—sometimes referred to as a “respected force”—Shannon seeks first to understand our client companies. What are their goals? Their needs? What’s important to them and to their success?
Forming strong relationships with Imprint’s clients and establishing the trust necessary to convey vital outputs are essential. She knows that clients who are open to data can make positive changes, fostering good behaviors and skills and ensuring the right person-job fit.
Shannon’s calculated yet visionary approach to data collection and representation is never cookie-cutter. She’s always alert to better ways of presenting data, to new formats. She takes nothing for granted, sifting through viewpoints, opinions, and data to produce an objective, big-picture view of marketing readiness.
When Shannon isn’t swimming in data, she heads to the beach; water and sand are good therapy for the data-driven soul. And at home, she’s a DIY aficionado—if you can make it, why buy it?
Shannon believes: “No matter how talented you are, your talent will fail you, if you’re not skilled. Skill is achieved through practice. Work hard and dedicate to being better every single day.” ~Will Smith
