You already have the talent.

We know that the barrier between you and success is paper thin.

A dose of focus and motivation is all that’s needed to break through.

Meet Andy Cole

Executive, Engineer, Consultant, Coach

Founder of Mainspring

Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege of working alongside so many talented and powerful leaders. But – for most of them – there existed a barrier: A ceiling that was keeping them from growing in the way they wanted, achieving what they wanted, and leading in a way that makes them proud. Because I have such a strong belief in human potential, I have become utterly obsessed with this phenomenon, and I am committed to helping leaders identify their barriers, break through them, and accomplish great things.

With 15 years of experience as a business executive, renewables engineer, strategy consultant, and leadership coach, I have a deep appreciation for the challenges my clients face; and I pride myself on having the unique ability to gain insight through empathy, build authentic relationships, and communicate in a way that shifts old thought patterns and inspires meaningful action.
