The Colombian electricity sector needs an ethical management style associated with a work environment that supports its principles. Furthermore, self-efficacy determines individual creative will and commitment does not always have an integrating function. For this reason, this research seeks to analyze the relationship between ethical leadership and a benevolent climate through the mediation of creative self-efficacy and the double moderation of the commitment to continuity. For this purpose, a conditional model is used. The sample is 448 employees. Ethical leadership builds a habitat of autonomy and trust that leads to self-perceptions of creative self-efficacy. Likewise, personality dimensions such as openness to experience, conscientiousness, and extraversion normalize the mediating function of creative self-efficacy regarding ethical leadership and a benevolent climate and includes all three variables. Finally, the commitment to continuity favors job dissatisfaction, emotional exhaustion, and personal inadequacy, which stops the dynamic behavior that creative self-efficacy needs, and at the same time interrupts the prosocial relationships that unite the ethical leader with a benevolent climate.
