What are the implications of social influence for individuals and organizations?
Social influence can be defined as when a persons own opinions, beliefs, or behaviors are influenced by other people's opinions, beliefs, and behaviors. When social influence begins affecting individuals it can lead to compliance, identification, and internalization. Within an organization these individuals may feel peer pressure to conform against their own desires in order to 'fit in.' They may comply and keep their beliefs to themselves. This can lead to dissatisfied employees. People may identify with leaders of the organization and this could lead to employee's acting in a manner, in contrast to their own beliefs, in order to seek approval from the superior.

Which factors may influence communication and interpersonal interaction?
Cultural Influence Culture refers to the customs, language, arts, common dietary habits and attire of a particular region. It also includes the learned values, beliefs and behaviors common to a group of individuals. Culture and communication are inseparable. This means that culture can be a strong barrier to interpersonal communication between people of different cultures. Individuals from different cultural backgrounds often carry an attitude that their own culture is superior to that of others. This attitude hampers interpersonal communication between two individuals or groups from different cultural backgrounds. Individuals who are ethnocentric in nature often are under the impression that anyone who does not belong to their group is either strange or inferior. This perception also prevents healthy social and political communication between two groups. Power Power is the ability to influence others and have strong self-control under complex circumstances. All interpersonal communication or interactions reflect some form of power, which may be obvious or hidden. Obvious power refers to people who occupy a higher position in business or government and have to communicate with their employees or subjects. People in power positions may exert their power on individuals who are not equally competent, and this inequality could act as a barrier to effective communication.
