Welcome to 4thway
4thway is a specialist consultancy owned and operated primarily by John Dawson. He works with several colleagues who specialise in providing business and management consulting, including facilitation, coaching and mediation services.
What distinguishes 4thway is how we work in strategic, operational and social dimensions at the same time. We quickly gain an understanding of your organisation's imperatives and context without becoming identified with the complexities and details. We then hold this as the focus while working with you and your teams objectively. This brings more balance into day-to-day work activities and relationships for your teams and organisation as a whole.
Our approach is practical, common sense, collaborative and client centred. It's based on our experiences of workplaces and environments in New Zealand and other countries. In working with us, you and your teams develop action oriented plans that are aimed at getting the right things done. We help you to clear complexity and create understanding, generating engagement, ownership and real contributions in your workplaces.
