Scenario: Fox the Flattering Florist has six locations in Global Springfield and has done well since opening in 2012. There are four employees in each store, and at this time, they sell cut flowers and potted plants, but not much else. In bad economic times, fewer people buy flowers, and the perishable nature of the product has owner Florida Fox concerned. While she wants to continue in the floral business, it seems the right time to expand. She has asked for a meeting to discuss ideas, and each store will send one employee to this meeting.
Research online to learn about command, consult, vote, and consensus decision-making methods. Choose one of these methods you feel would work well with this scenario.
For the initial post:

In a second paragraph, explain why you feel this would be appropriate for the scenario and share suggestions for managing the meeting itself. Write this from experience and critical thinking, not from source material.
Provide a full APA 7th edition reference entry at the bottom of the post.
