"I will make the decision."
One or more leaders decide what is best for the group as a whole at this time. Leaders may consult with other members before making a decision, but the decision belongs to the leader(s) alone.
"We will make the decision because most of us agree."
The majority of members (51% or more) agree that the decision is the best one for the whole group at this time. Often achieved through voting.
"We will make the decision only when everyone can agree."
All members of the group agree on one decision all believe is the best one for the whole group at this time.
