    orchestrated a successful negotiation

    "Everything from your salary to your fringe benefits should be seen as a conversation between you and your employer, rather than a binary choice. If youíre not sure how to go about this, start by asking people you trust who have orchestrated a successful negotiation for advice."

    From https://www.forbes.com/sites/biancab.../#3c3f5bf1a95b

    Orchestrate:
    written to organize an important event or a complicated plan, especially secretly

    What does "orchestrate" mean here? How is it different from "arrange"?
    I am a fleeting visitor on this fragile Earth.

    Re: orchestrated a successful negotiation

    Planned or arranged. And I would prefer either one over "orchestrated" in that context.

    This just means people who are good/skilled negotiators.
    By using this phrasing, the author is trying to emphasize the point.
