Impression management (IM) tactics are carried out by members of the organization, including the managers, and addressed to all those who interact with them in the workplace. Middle line managers and firstline supervisors work with their superiors, co-workers or other managers at the same level, and of course their subordinates. Their promotion and any other rewards are depend on the performance appraisal by their superior as well as their successfull works are determined by their co-workers and their subordinates, because they require the same level managers for coordination between units, and they have to influence their subordinates to implement all the strategies are made. Those situation can drive managers to more engage in the impression management (IM) tactics, that will be directed to the three targets, namely superiors, peers, and their subordinates. On the other hand, IM tactics are often regarded as negative behaviors. However, in the context of a particular culture, such as in a high power distance culture, this behavior is seen as normative and legitimated. Furthermore, in the collectivism culture which emphasis on membership in groups and common goals, welfare of the group, courtesy and harmony will drive people to engage in IM tactics. According to Hofstede, Indonesia has a high power distance and collectivism culture. Therefore we can suggest that the managers will play IM tactics in order to fulfill some different roles - demonstrate compliance and loyal to the group members, support and protect the subordinate, and gain the more rewards from their superior - and in Indonesia, these behaviors is normative and needed. This paper is a literature study that based on the theories and previous researches in impression management tactics on the cultural context of high power distance and collectivism. This study will provide an understanding of the implementation of IM tactics based on the factors that encourage managers perform the this tactics and the potential impacts that may occur as a result of these manager's behaviors that be directed to the superior, co-workers, and subordinates. In the rest, this paper will provide some advice for future researches.
