|Business Jargon: To hold one's feet to the fire|
To put pressure on someone to perform.
A: We’ve got a real problem. Our supplier hasn’t delivered the product.
B: OK. Call him up, and hold his feet to the fire. I want you to call him every day until the product arrives, and if you have to, tell him that we may have to look elsewhere if he can’t deliver.
