Meeting Success Happens Before the Meeting Starts

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Feb 28, 2019 4:54:23 PM

At the end of each work day, many leave the office or shut down their laptops thinking, “What did I accomplish today” or “Was I productive enough?” One thing that can cut into how productive someone was that day is meetings. Yes, they are absolutely 100% needed; they are where we share ideas, collaborate, make decisions and come together as a group to update one another on the many things our teams juggle on a daily basis. What is not needed is a meeting where time is wasted because of preventable reasons.

Managing the American Registry for Migraine Research: How picking up the phone rather than sending an email has made a difference in just a few months

Posted by Anna Quinn, MPH, RYT on Sep 4, 2018 11:38:02 AM

When I started my position as the American Registry for Migraine Research Administrator for Talley Management, Inc.’s (TMG) client partner American Headache Society (AHS), I started reviewing AHS’s site evaluation, a beginning point for my work as the new administrator for our registry. This informal evaluation helped me understand what was happening at each of the sites on the ground while also allowing me to immediately work with each site’s team to troubleshoot or provide feedback.

Running Productive Team Meetings

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Mar 28, 2018 9:41:50 AM

We’ve all been there-stuck on another conference call or in a meeting that seems to have lost focus. How much time do we spend in meetings or on calls that are not accomplishing what they are set up to do? Studies show a typical employee spends 31 hours a month in unproductive meetings. That is a lot of wasted time, too much. Whether you are leading a team meeting or are a participant, we can all contribute to improving how we spend time in meetings and make them as productive as possible.
