***CRYSTAL P.***
Conflict can influence not only the individual person but the organizational processes and outcomes as well. Conflict exists within various contexts as well as to different levels of analysis such as between groups. Interpersonal conflict is defined as “a dynamic process that occurs between individuals and/or groups who are in interdependent relationships and is more likely to occur when a variety of background situational and personal conditions exists” (Hartwick & Barki, 2004, pp. 4-5). A disagreement typically exists between parties on their separate views on values, needs, interests, opinions, or objectives (Hartwick & Barki, 2004). McClelland’s motivations revolve around both intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. Motivation is considered the key behind a person’s drive to engage in their work, perform at a higher quality, and they benefit more from occupational training (Rybnicek et al., 2019). Most theoretical approaches argue that motivation emerges from both “internal factors of an individual that drive action and external factors of the environment that stimulate the action” (Locke & Lantham, 2004, as cited in Rybnicek et al., 2019).
When discussing external factors, McClelland focuses on motivations such as rewards, incentives, reinforcements, and extrinsic motivations (Rybnicek et al., 2019). As another content theory that motivates employees as the McClelland’s need theory has, is that of Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. According to Maslow (1954) “people seek to meet their needs, but some needs take precedence over the other” (Raines, 2020, p. 48). Maslow breaks down each need from the highest to the lowest beginning with the physiological, safety, love/belonging, esteem, and last self-actualization (Raines, 2020). Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is still widely discussed when it comes basic human needs. This theory can also be applied to the origins and escalation of conflict depending upon how low the issue falls on the hierarchy ladder and people’s willingness to fight for their desired outcome. Internal factors refer to the “internal tension that influences the cognitive processes which underlie behaviors” (Kanfer, 1991, as cited in Rybnicek et al., 2019, p. 446).
Internal motivations are described as those related to personal achievement, a need for affiliation, and the need for power (Rybnicek et al., 2019). Internal factors are also associated with what is known as intrinsic rewards. Intrinsic rewards are things such as autonomy, meaningful work tasks, challenges, and emotional intimacy just to name a few. In Orrick’s (2008) study, leaders were tasked with identifying generational differences, providing growth and better opportunities, giving feedback and recognition when warranted; and providing adequate training as well as equipment for officers to do their jobs. As an outcome of this study, agencies were able to use exit and ‘stay’ interviews to assess why officers stay as well as why they leave. Surveys can also provide organizations with information to identify what their employees really want to be able to provide them with it. The Bible says, “But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded” (English Standard Version Bible, 2016, 2 Chr 15:7). With hard work comes good rewards and a sign of appreciation by those in leadership positions.

Conflict Management in Unionized Environments
Unions and management/labor in the workplace in the United States have shared a volatile relationship in the United States. Beginning in the 1830’s labor unions were established to protect workers from the abuses of management that were the norm throughout the 19thand 20th centuries—the ability to form alliances such as those found in labor unions allowed employees to voice their concerns in one concise voice. Many employees felt safety and wages precipitate conflicts between management employees and union representatives. Raines (2020) claims wrongful termination, unfair treatment, harassment, workplace safety concerns, discrimination, intra-team dispute, personality conflicts, and so forth (p. 194).   
The Establishment of Labor Unions
Historically, the Unionized workplaces owe their lineage to the period following the Black Plague in Europe. The plague disseminated the labor force in Europe; in addition to the growing economic stagnation, a decrease in production increased to force the price of goods to rise, creating a demand for labor. Labor in this situation was able to demand a living wage and improved working conditions. In their need to produce, the ruling class members found themselves forced to provide the mandated salaries and improved work conditions. Both parties understood that one party needed to make money, and the other had a commodity in demand. Both parties understood that they needed each other to have a successful enterprise. The concept of a symbiotic relationship between labor and management would last for centuries.
During the Middle Ages, the fallout of the plague caused a significant portion of the European population to die, leaving the demand for individuals to work the fields. The shortage of work forced Surfs to work longer hours. The extended hours combined with the labor shortage, provided the conditions for re-bargaining between the lords and the surfs. The ability to negotiate from the position of strength served as the earliest form of collective bargaining implemented in labor negotiations.
Post-industrial American, Labor Unions, and the Great Depression
In the post-industrialized society, labor unions emerged as a tool for collective bargaining in the 1920s-1930s during the Great Depression, when unemployment in America reached 14%. During this period, America was transforming from a predominantly agricultural society to a mechanized industry leading to the need for a specialized labor force, the challenge of child labor, and the acceptance of unskilled labor as the backbone of the industrialized workforce. During this period, management unthought the concept of federally mandated minimum wage.  
The concept of labor protections founded its roots in the heavily industrialized Northern Eastern states, which demonstrated the improvement of the importance of unions and their connection to greater economic prosperity. According to Ahlquist (2017), in rich democracies, Unionization also correlates with redistribution of both income, and financial risk, demonstrating that unions can be political actors. To the extent that unions tend to mobilize citizens further down the income distribution (P. 41).
Collective Bargaining
Collective bargaining among the interested participants is utilized in the conflict resolution process to reach an agreement. The external environment plays a significant role in the process and can affect collective bargaining. According to Katz et al. (2017), the external environment includes five key elements: the economic climate (micro and macro), law and public, the demographic context, social attitudes, and the technological context (p. 9). The concept lends itself to controlling when and where negotiations should occur in a favorable setting.  
Christian World View
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention (Proverbs 15:18, ESV).

Crime Sentences
The issues that will be discussed in this course will at times be controversial. Our goal is to experience a robust discussion of the issues, understanding that we will be presented with a range of viewpoints.
To begin, we will define some of the key areas that we will visit throughout the course.
Should all criminals be given the same sentence for the same crime? Or should each offender’s personal characteristics be taken into account? If you agree with the latter, provide an example to illustrate.
Does crime serve any positive function for society? Identify five industries or companies that benefit from crime. Try to come up with examples that have not been mentioned by other students. Is it morally acceptable for a legitimate business to profit because of crime?
Do you think it is permissible for the state to investigate and even prosecute a person who has not yet committed a crime, based on the belief that he will do so in the future?

Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
This assignment requires you to examine ethics in your new career as a criminal justice professional. You have just started out as a criminal justice professional. You have a partner who has spent 15 years in this profession. One day while you are out with your partner, you see that he is talking to a member of the local mob. Your partner accepts a large yellow envelope and tucks it quickly into his pocket. You know that the man has a criminal record and has a history of extorting money out of the local businesses, but has never been charged with it due to lack of evidence. You ask your partner about the mobster and he tells you not to worry about it. You wonder if you should report the incident to the chief or not.
Discuss the virtues that affected your judgment. Why is it important to have virtues? Define virtue and list five examples of good virtues. How do these virtues develop? Can training play in developing these virtues?
Discuss the importance of ethics. What choices did you have while making the decision of telling the chief about the incident with your partner? Was the choice that you exercised based on an internalized or externalized behavior and value? Which virtues supported not reporting your partner?
You continue to question your partner about the “envelope.” Your partner finally responds and says it has been a long established tradition for local bookies to donate to the Police Athletic League and in return the cops look the other way when it comes to minor things like betting on sports.
How would you react if guided by:
Ethical formalism
Egoism
Utilitarianism
Ethics of care
Which choice would you personally make, and why?
