What is Power Dynamics?

The new system for social skills.

Power dynamics is the science of people. It’s the application of advanced social skills to all aspects of winning with people to achieve goals—and doing so efficiently.
And power is about getting what you want.
A foundational understanding of power dynamics boosts how to negotiate, engage, and succeed with people—whether they’re being their best selves or their darker, selfish, more manipulative selves.
This is what was missing, and this is what we focus on.

So, similar to how psychology applies scientific principles to the human mind, power dynamics applies scientific principles to social and life success.

Before self-development courses and qualified coaches started addressing social skills, books and trial and error were the only ways to improve.

Power dynamics is at a similar inflection point. The barrier to entry is large but the early adopters who start now will be years ahead of the competition.

Experts Explain Why Learning Power Dynamics

Women use the dominance hierarchy to select mates.”

-Jordan Peterson, psychologist, philosopher and thought leader
If you’re rich and powerful you can be a jerk and don’t need to be attractive. At the highest level (power) it’s what people respond most strongly to.

-Charlie Houpert, founder of “Charisma on Command”
The feeling that I cannot have any power over my spouse, children, boss, and career is deeply unsettling (…). If you want to create something, you have to be willing to get dirty and strategic.”

-Robert Greene, author and power dynamics expert

The Curriculum

You will learn to apply these concepts, strategies & skills to social success and goal achievement:

Taught by the Founder of The Power Dynamics Institute

Lucio Buffalmano
Holds a master’s degree from La Sapienza, department of communication and sociological research, is a member of the American Psychology Association (APA), and dedicates his life to researching, uncovering, testing, and refining the most effective strategies and techniques for social success.

The Power Moves (TPM) Community
The TPM community is a collective of students of power dynamics — all Power University alumni — who have helped to advance both power dynamics as a discipline and Power University as a learning tool.
Driven men and women with incredibly bright minds have applied Power University’s principles across numerous industries and areas of the world, in the most disparate environments and social situations.
Originally, they simply proved Power University’s concepts. But, then they went further, refining some of those concepts, and then coming up with brand new ones as well as strategies, techniques, and approaches validated by real-life testing and Buffalmano’s expertise as a social scientist. Perhaps best of all, they’ve brainstormed and shared better ways to structure and simplify Power University’s groundbreaking teachings, so it’s as easy as possible for future students.

TPM has been featured, quoted, or linked from:

  • Psychology Today
  • ResearchGate
  • BBC
  • Forbes
  • And countless universities

What Is Your Advanced Resource to Win With People?

Everybody needs at least one.

Something more than the basic, common social skills that most mentors, books, and courses teach.

Problem is, it takes ~10 years to earn a master in communication and social research, read thousands of papers, hundreds of books, go through hundreds of courses, and then test to identify what information actually works in the real world.

I know because I did it.

This is why I created Power University: to cut the line.

Hundreds of the best minds in combination with decades of research on social dynamics, power, Machiavellianism, and strategies are condensed into a course on power for real-world skills and results.


Take a peek inside the preview lesson for Power University.


Don’t waste any more time and get down to it.

Who is Power University for?

It’s designed for people who want to take their social effectiveness to a whole new level.

For driven men and women who want to become master persuaders, acquire status and power, and win promotions, but also make for and find great partners to establish an above average relationship with.

Yet, it’s also for those who are struggling a bit, such as if you still need to lose your “too nice” persona, naive mindsets, or learn how to defend yourself, stand up, and stop the assholes and manipulators in your life.

Power University is advanced, and to make the most out of it a minimum level of emotional intelligence and social skills is recommended (if you’re not there yet, start with these).

⚠️ Full disclosure: Power University is intense. We expect our students to be fully committed to internalizing new and empowering mindsets, and to apply in real-life our proven strategies and techniques. We help you along the way with quizzes, pop-tests, exercises, and assignment, but you must also do your part by taking action. As we say in the welcome lesson: you provide the motivation, and we give you the tools to gain more control over your life.

The Promise of Power University

You will develop an extensive understanding of the crucial principles that underpin social and life success.

Most of all, you will learn how to apply proven strategies and techniques to win and achieve goals.

Our mindsets, strategies and techniques ensure that you will improve your effectiveness and get above average benefits and better results in socializing, dating, relationships, leadership, communication, negotiation, persuasion, sales… and anything people-related (or anything that requires strategic thinking).

We can make big promises because for one reason:

We provide the results to back them up.

Again and again.

Let's start:

Power University Video Reviews


Power University is literally changing my life. More than one person came to tell me I'm different -for the better-. Not to mention how more confident I feel now knowing and noticing the power moves happening all the time. Of all the money I've spent on self-help books and courses this was by far the best investment.


I was expecting good content, but I also thought I was going to read things I already knew. Boy, I was wrong. It's the first time I'm hearing about most of this stuff, even though I bought dozens of other courses and had a mentor for a year. I only went through module 1 but I can already see what potential this knowledge has to improve my life. Power University paints the big picture and connects the pieces of the puzzle. I think the course is worth much, much more.


I had my reservations before signing up, but with only module 1 done I learned SO much more about the power dynamics that happened in my own relationships than I had EVER. Which is both awesome and disturbing



I'm completely blown away by the material of this course. I have an elite background, first class education, and yet I didn't have a clue about this stuff. This material is so powerful that I couldn't help but feel angry that I had been kept in the dark.


The lessons on frame control and video examples have opened my mind. I can come up with frame control techniques on the fly.

- Anthony R.


Power University is amazing. It already helps me to unnecessarily lower my power. It gives me strength and clarity, and keeps me from going back to my shy and defensive behavior.

- Kevin S.


I've never seen before something so complete, deep, and versatile in one program. And It works. In a few weeks I’ve increased my social intelligence by many folds.

- Ang


I discovered that I was sending lots of submissive signals (...) and giving my power away. And if I'm unconsciously communicating that I don't deserve respect, why should other people bother. (...) A necessary wake-up call for me, and now I can correct course. (...) I highly recommend this course.

- Leon

Power University Public Reviews

These are public reviews.

You can check them for yourself by following the links.

Keep in mind the course was previously called "Social Power", so some reviews reference "Social Power" instead of "Power University", but they're the same thing (actually, "Power University" is far better as it's gone through several updates).

  • Most actionanable course out there

I took a lot of courses (...) from well-known individuals and respectable institutions (...) Mindvalley, Tony Robbins, Robbin Sharma, Robert Moore, Vanessa Van Edwards among many others. I learned a ton but the best, the ultimate course I have joined so far belongs to a man I had never heard before. His name is Lucio Buffalmano.
This is a life changer (...) his course works and is probably the most actionable course out there. I truly recommend it to anyone who wants to gain social power. Because when you gain social power, you gain success.

  • That course is genuinely amazing

See the review here.

for full disclosure, the full review is:

That course is genuinely amazing despite it looking like some 12 year old fresh off a power trip from 48 laws of power wrote the advertising for it

I appreciated the feedback on the marketing side :).

  • There is no course that even comes close (when it comes to dealing with people)

Power University is the best course I've ever taken. I'm confident that there is no course that comes even close to covering the Power University curriculum of dealing with other people as well as Power University does

Power University success story

You can see this thread here.

Note: John actually came up with the strategy that he applied himself, putting together different pieces of information, so all the credit to him. 
I then added that strategy to Power University (thanks, John!).

  • One of the best investments for personal wealth

As somebody who's starting to come to the end of a carer I can say (...) this is literally the best investment you could make

Read this comment here.

That's talking from a career perspective (there is a whole module on career strategies and power dynamics). 
The little money you're paying now, will likely turn into 10x more income and success during your career.

  • Mind-boggling growth

I joined the course Charisma University, but when I failed to connect with new people using the techniques, my tiny pieces of self esteem shattered.
I was so sick of living in constant stress and fear of my neighbor that I decided to buy PU. And holy sh*t am I happy I did. The growth I've seen since I joined is tremendous. As I'm typing this out it's almost mind boggling to see how far I've managed to come in a little over a year.
Since I joined I've learned to see the world through a new lens, the lens that we here call power awareness. With this lens I've been able to improve relationshipsstand up to my boss(es) on several occasions,  learned to how to give value to the people around me, and just in general learned to enforce boundaries and stand up for myself and what I believe in.
Most of all, since I joined Power University I've realized that I hold all the power to turn myself into any sort of person I want to become, and to shape my life into the life I want to live. As I write this I know I have a long way to go, but now I know that I have what it takes to achieve anything I set my mind to.

  • Social ju-jitsu techniques take your social skills to advanced level
a review from power university in the forum

I was blown away by this concept. It completely changed my way of interacting with people, for real.

This was a case study on handling micro-aggressions and covert aggressions, which together account for probably 90% of all aggressions you'll go through in your life.
Now, thanks to John's initial question and feedback, it's a lesson in the "advanced social skills" module.

  • You will get rid of submissivness and become more assertive

What I learnt in the course is gonna extend to a lifetime ahead of me. It really helped me in terms of asserting myself. I can not describe my gratitude for this knowledge of power.

Power University Email Reviews

Some of the email feedback:

  • So good you wanna keep it secret
a student feedback on power university

For me this course is too valuable to ever let it have search history

My answer: don't worry about others studying the same. First of all, this website is niche enough that you will most likely not meet anyone else who has taken this advanced type of training. And two, most people are too lazy to train themselves to elite levels.

So, yeah... That's your chance, guys:

  • Groundbreaking: there's no comparison on the market

It's the first time I'm hearing about most of this stuff, even though I bought dozens of other courses and had a mentor for a year. The course is worth much, much more.


Eye-opener (...) the subtle and hidden power moves totally mind-blowing (...) I feel so lucky (...) Thank you for teaching me the most valuable currency in life

power university review from a customer

Mind-blowing stuff. I'm getting a ton out of it.

Yeah, it's a life-changing course, but full access is a different product. On the other hand, Power University covers all the basics, so you might not need the full website access.


It's by far the best self-help I've ever come across

Note: the course was previously called "Social Power", that's why the subject line

I'm blown away by the value of your course. I'm not even at chapter 2 yet.


an email feedback for power university



The Power University is literally changing my life (...) each small thing I learn about social dynamics makes me realize how oblivious I was. More than one person came to tell me that I'm different somehow, for the better. This was, by far, the best investment.

And if you're interested in competing products, take a look at this thread:

Or go straight to what's been proven to work:

Customer Service Reviews

The people enrolling in Power University are actively improving their lives.

And I feel like we are kindred souls. 
People who want more for themselves and their lives, and take concrete steps to have it.

And without them, this website wouldn't exist.
I always prioritize customers above anything else:

That was one of the first customers. And since then, the customer experience has only improved

Power University Negative Reviews

ThePowerMoves.com is not your typical business.

To begin with, it prioritizes product over marketing (there still isn't even a video or a teaser to advertise Power University).

Another way ThePowerMoves.com is different is by being far more open as to what happens behind the curtains.

So I'm including here the feedback of those who didn't vibe with Power University.
It's rare, but anything can happen. 

This alumnus was looking for something shorter:

Power University can be a life-changer... If you are willing to spend some effort

I immediately refunded P, no questions asked.
P was not a good fit for the course, and I knew it.
We aren't yet in an era where we can install wisdom and skills by plugging a cable in our brain (and trust me sometimes I wish we were already :).
In our era, life doesn't change without some action. So you still need to do your part.

When Women's Sections Were Lacking

Power University constantly improves its curriculum.

The last major update was thanks to a customer called Kristina.
Kristina thought Power University was too male-centric:

I am extremely grateful for Kristina's feedback. 
This is what she went on to say:

Kristina had a great point.
There is no such resource to teach women how to strategically handle power and success while still remaining likable and feminine.

And that's exactly what this website provides: smart social strategies for life success.

Since then and for 5 months I did nothing but research women and power.
All of my quarantine 15-hours workdays also all went into this project.
So I got the books she suggested. And many more. I delved into the research literature for women and power, and women in the workplace. 
I recalled all instances of powerful women I've met, and I scoured movies and YouTube for real-life examples.

And I condensed all that knowledge into a few lessons tailored for women only. One addressing the mindsets, one addressing career strategies, and one on how to combine power and femininity.
All with practical examples and videos.
Now Power University is the best course on the market for women who seek to combine personal success with social success.

So if you're a woman, this might be for you:

When you hate PU (and its author) because you got kicked out of it

Well, this was interesting.

I removed this user from PU and refunded her the initial price she paid.
And that eventually led the user to say it was "the worst experience she's ever had".

I fully accept the reality of her negative experience seen from her point of view.

On the positive side, if you think about it, the fact that one got so emotional and so badly wanted to stay in PU tells you a lot about how good it can be for you.

And then she says:

Her complaint confirms that every time we said that "the price will go up", we told the truth.
And the only reason why the price has gone up 10x is that the quality has gone up 100x.
So you actually get far better value now.

By the way, you can also learn more about how to handle challenging situations like an irate customer in PU.

Independent Authors' Reviews

And I will end with another public review. 
This is what Alexander, an early student of Power University, says of the people he has learned from:

You can see that review here.

Full disclosure on vid reviews: since some students wish to remain anonymous, for some videos, I hired a professional to read the reviews aloud. The speaker's gender, race, and skin color are random.
To keep the videos short and meaningful I sometimes cut the original (video)reviews. Overall, the videos preserved the original meaning. And I believe the video reviews are a faithful and realistic representation of the full (text-based) reviews.
