An analytical framework seeking to understand the application of practicing meditation towards mediating egocentrism is presented. It emphasises achieving emotional balance. It is assessed through four propositions on whether practicing meditation facilitates a decrease in egocentrism: If duration is increased, do practitioners progress from Dharana to Dhyana? If “one pointed” attention of meditation technique is used, does it counter egocentrism? and, When both aspects of practicing meditation are used, does the practitioner develop positive leadership? It contributes to the studies on management, leadership, and people practices. It mainly contributes to the studies on egocentrism and will facilitate transforming egocentric leaders into using positive attributes and becoming productive in leadership style, assessing and transforming the younger generation of potential leaders into positive leaders, and in guiding business education to develop leaders free of egocentrism.
