What makes up a highly effective scrum master?

Scrum Master, as popularized by Scrum is usually one of the key roles (the two other roles being The Team and Product Owner) in almost every agile project. In a business-as-usual setting, the Scrum Master keep the team focused on the goal, facililiates different ceremonies and remove impediments. I reckon this is just the bare minimum.
