What is the difference between thermometer and thermostat
Use a Philip's screwdriver to adjust a thermostat that is slightly off. Specifically, the certain metals change conductivity according to changes in temperature. A thermistor is a temperature-sensitive resistor, whilst a thermocouple generates a voltage proportional to the temperature.
In regards to calibration, a thermometer is a device that is used to document sample temperature. Therefore, in order to give an accurate reading, the thermometer needs proper calibration, which is required by the CDC and VFC to be done annually.

This is something I have wondered about, but have not been able to get a good answer for.
On a thermostat there are two settings. The target temperature the desired temperatureand the ambient temperature what the room measures. When the thermostat turns on, the heating element or burner inside the oven turns on until the heat sensor trips the thermostat to shut off the heat source because the oven has reached the needed temperature. If you suspect the oven is not cooking at the correct temperature, the thermostat might need to be recalibrated.
Preheat the oven and place an oven thermometer inside. If the temperature is between 25 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit off from the set temperature and the actual temperature, you can adjust the thermostat to recalibrate it.
If the temperature difference is greater than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to replace both the heat sensor and the thermostat. Use a Philip's screwdriver to adjust a thermostat that is slightly off.
Pull the control knob off the front of the oven to locate the thermostat adjustment control. How can this analogy add to our definition of good leadership as put forth by Conley? Knowing yourself and your organization is paramount before choosing your leadership approach.
Are You a Thermometer or Thermostat Leader?
Empowering someone still is a firm of setting the tone as a thermostat sets the temperature. Randy, thank for sharing this through the leadership carnival this month! I love the analogy and think the next generation of this thought process is leaders who know their people so well that they know how and when to regulate the environment to maximize results. I love the way you extended the analogy and I agree with you completely!
Thanks for adding your insights Mary. Great post and great analogy for demonstrating the differences in the way leaders behave and react.
We all must ensure we make the transition from thermometer to thermostat leadership style for this is one of the leadership qualities required to excel in the 21st century work environment. I coach girls high school basketball.
Are You a Thermometer or Thermostat?
Gave this to the entire team to read. I think coaching staff got as much out of it as girls. We as a staff will make a conscious effort to be thermostats and not thermometers this year.
I coached youth baseball for over 15 years so coaching has a special place in my heart. My youngest son plays basketball and is about to start his senior season in high school. Reblogged this on ladycrusadercoach and commented: Greqt article on leadership.
I like this article. It talks of the need for one to be a pro-active leader as compared to being a re-active one. I remind myself daily of this and i find it very helpful in the situations that i undergo in my work place and life generally.
Setting the tone, or temperature, for our teams is a big responsibility. MLK took the time to stop and reflect on what the church was doing in impacting the world. We can take the same concept — stop and reflect where our actions and attitudes are taking our staff and office dynamic. It is an excellent idea to relate things in such a way.Thermometer vs. Thermostat (leadership lessons)
It has give an opportunity to search myself as where do I fit in. This is great wisdom to bring into parenting as well, or just into family life in general.
Even though I can be a bit of a thermometer myself, I am blessed to be married to an excellent thermostat! They are often copper and aluminum, tungsten and nickel, or some combination of those metals. When they experience a temperature change, their responsive movements produce pressure that either presses against the electric contact or pulls away from the electric contact.
Know the Difference: Thermostat vs. Thermometer Calibration
The device is calibrated to perform the requisite movement at just the correct temperature to press down on the contact. A thermistor is based on the same principle as a thermostat, but it is used in a different manner. A thermistor uses a metallic oxide compound such as cobalt or manganese. The principle is that the conductivity of the metallic oxide changes according to temperature.
