"He held gut-check meeting heads I.B.M."
: a test or assessment of courage, character, or determination
You have the hyphenated form gut-check as an adjective.
From what little observation I could infer from it, brought or summoned together the heads of IBM into a group, crowd, company, assembly, or unit to drastically and thoroughly discuss and troubleshoot what impediments or predicaments prevent business from picking up, keep sales or production down etc, and our neon God knows what not.
He probably hammered away at every possible flaw, at the prevention of all past mistakes, making sure he leave none out at the long hours he and the heads of IBM would have to spend at the meeting, probably having to hold a series of meetings til they nail down an ailing problem and, if possible, all the problem cruces that somehow kept what business they have from flourishing, and our gold-plated god knows what else he would discuss at the meetings.
