Perhaps:
  • If you don't mind my asking, who makes the decisions in your family?

Would you mind my asking, who makes the decision in the family?

Another way to soften the statement is to mention the specific area of interest.

"When it comes to purchasing a new car for your family, are you the decision maker?" :wink:

That's good, but I think it should be decisions there. (As it turns out, he was asking about a seller talking to a buyer (on the corporate level), but those were good suggestions.)
