I can understand both of your points. As a business owner I understand his need to see that each person is pulling their weight. However I am totally in favor of your idea as you never want to single people out or promote the fact that one person has done more than another. This singles out people and breaks down the concept that everyone is equal. I think your point is taken and it would be beneficial to listen to each person's problems with his strategy. It sounds like he is a little bit of a control freak and I don't envy your position. Usually when bosses insist on a strategy that may or may not even be working they have their minds set on an idea and no one can move them from it. I think you going to have to take speaking your mind very slowly. He doesn't seem the type to listen right away.
Hope this was helpful . If so press accept. Sorry for the delay
