Succeeding in Management 1983 is a business self-help book. Presumably the guide was published in 1983. Mabel uses the outdated techniques to her advantage in "Boss Mabel ." One such technique is "imaginizing."


The book is full of impromptu techniques of running a business. Some of the techniques included are wearing shoulder pads, which Mabel does respectively. Another such technique is wearing a suit, possibly based on the "dress to impress" theory. Another possible technique, is to make the employees feel better specifically the method SELVES: "Satisfied Everyday Loving Life Very Much Everyday Satisfied", which "increases" work production by making the employees feel like they are number one, making their work spaces more self-friendly, and giving employees time off with full pay.

"Imaginizing" is another technique revealed to be in the book. Apparently, this technique is used to allow an uncomfortable employee to imagine themselves in a state of success and perseverance, therefore attempting to put those thoughts into actions.


The book is a considerably long book. The book is long in height, and, due to its older age, and has become more wrinkled and damaged over the years. The cover of the book contains a picture of a floppy disk, the planet Earth, and a graph. The words "SUCCEEDING IN MANAGEMENT" are pasted toward the bottom north to the bottom center of the book in crimson. Over the graph is the year "1983" pasted in a yellow-green in a larger font than the rest of the words on the cover.
