Doing Ministry As A Team...

In the current issue of Leadership Journal, Nancy Ortberg describes the five most common dysfunctions of a ministry team. Here are the five dysfunctions she identifies:
  • Absence of trust
  • Fear of conflict
  • Inability to make a commitment
  • Avoidance of accountability
  • Inattention to results
I'd appreciate feedback as to whether or not you agree these five describe the most common dysfunctions of a team, ministry or otherwise. It would also be helpful to hear how you and your team mates have worked to overcome these or other limiters of your team's effectiveness.
