Goals, Roles & Souls (GRS) is a simple and flexible checklist for mobilising a group of individuals into a focussed team quickly for group development activities such as Business Simulators or other team-based exercises.
GRS can also be used for setting up teams quickly to address urgent operational or strategic challenges, problems and opportunities.
