I'd like to ask about the meaning of the phrase "keep your pulse on something":
Keep your pulse firmly on the business and let your personal energy translate into results in your company. If you have become used to giving orders from the top, this is a good time to get back down to basics and soil your hands.
The things that people say, parrot-fashion, with little idea...
This speaker has got part of it. The expression is, 'keep your finger on the pulse'. Just as you would check someone's heart rate by feeling their pulse, if you 'keep your finger on the pulse' of what is happening in your business, you are carefully monitoring how it's going.
