The Power Moves is all about social skills and human interactions.
The idea is to improve our understanding of social dynamics by breaking down and explaining the details of real life interactions.
Mastering social skills indeed is the main aim of this website. But it always ties back to personal mindsets, beliefs and behavior. As Leonardo Da Vinci said:
One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.
The Power Moves deals with the social dynamics, verbal and nonverbal, of people interactions. It spans the social dynamics of the three biggest realms of human socialization:
- Social Interactions
- Romantic Relationships
Social and social dynamics are the main focus, but it’s impossible -and unhelpful- separating the three. Therefore we will often go back and forth.
The Dark Side
A good chunk of focus in The Power Moves goes into the “dark side” of social dynamics.
Power abuse, verbal violence and day to day social climbing –Social Power Moves, in short-. Overall I believe humans are mostly good, but there’s plenty of ahole to go around.
And it’s up to us to know how to navigate the social arena to shoot back in style.

What’s Different: The Delivery
Simon Sinek says when you spend effort explaining why you’re different it’s because you’re not different. But if it’s your first time here, I felt the need start The Power Moves for two reasons:
- Little high quality information: I believe to give deeper insights than anyone else I had seen
- Most resources are uselessly generic. This website is specific.
“Be more assertive”, “be a challenge”… Have you ever wondered what do they even mean? The Power Moves want to show you exactly what do they mean in in the specific situation where they’re relevant.
I take a video, a text or tell you story. And tell you exactly what’s going on. What’s good with, what’s wrong, and what you should do when you’re in that situation.
That’s The Power Moves.
