Influence - The mechanism through which people use power to change behavior or attitudes. Unlike power, influence can produce an effect without the apparent exertion of force, compulsion, or direct command.
Power - the potential to allocate resources and to make and enforce decisions.

    Influence is a form of power.
    Power is the ability to control situations, people according to your wish. Forms of power include - Brute Force, Money, Infuence or social network, Political power.
    Abuse of power entrusted by the people on you, for private gain is called corruption.
    Influence is an indirect form of weilding power. In this you don't actually have power, but you know someone who does. And he/she can use it for your personal gain if you request him/her.
    Also influence can be be defined as the ability of befriending powerful people, either by quid pro quo or emotional association.
    Power is a complex subject which demands thorough study and observation. I hope I cleared your query.
