When culturally appropriate behavior Industrial Culture ◾  attracts social support from others, it becomes self-reinforcing. On the other hand, behavior that is inconsistent with the values and beliefs of the culture attracts unfavorable social attention, often described as peer pressure. Practitioners of the undesirable behavior may even be shunned or excluded from the group until they abandon the unacceptable practices.

In a strong industrial culture, people will behave in a generally appropriate manner without specific direction or even without the presence of a leader or manager.
